Back to Work Friday

Yep, I went into work today. Felt so good to get out of the house! There was so much to do to get things back under control in the classroom. My subs did a great job, but they were much too soft on my students and now my kids are a wee bit out of control. So much off-task behavior it made me crazy. Next week I will whip them back into shape. I think they need to have some consequences for their choices, and so I expect that there will be quite a few names on the naughty clipboard, and the classroom bank will collect a lot of fines. Thankfully, today was a minimum day. Once they went home, I was able to spend the rest of the afternoon working on my own to prepare for the week to come and the conferences I have to make up.

So, last night's and tonight's PIO shots really hurt! Michael can't figure out what he's doing differently, but he's making me squeal when he puts the needle in. Ouch!

Had a teeny bit of spotting just a little while ago. Not what I wanted to see, but I know it can be normal. It's just that every time I've ever seen it before, I wasn't pregnant. Sigh... Still, I'm holding on to my hope and faith, and praying for a positive BETA next Wednesday.

We're driving out tomorrow morning for a weekend in the desert. Michael has to work out that way. It's supposed to be nice and warm. I'm looking forward to it. Have a good weekend, too!

I don`t think he is doing anything wrong, those shots just hurt. Mine got worse as the cycle went on. I think you just run out of room. I was also incredibly skinny at the time, it is the one time in my life I wished for a bit more fat on my rump.

I would not worry too much about the spotting. It could be implantation spotting. It could be lots of things.

I agree on the spotting. When Gillian implanted I spotted (and cramped) so much I thought I had a regular period, and was not prego. And you know what happened there.

Enjoy your weekend.

Hey friend, yes, the spotting can be very normal. but, i know for you it is like an alarm.

I spotted when I was pregnant with Lucy for a good (bad!) week. I was worried sick and even had a very early ultrasound (the doctor wasn't worried, but she indulged me). It was nothing...just implantation. It's not a sign of anything either way really. Still, telling you not to worry will do no good I am sure! Just know that there are lots of people thinking about you and sending you prayers and positive vibes. I keep picturing you with twin girls, so I am going to hold on to that thought until proven otherwise!!

By the way, how are you feeling? When you did the IUIs, every time before you tested you said you didn't feel pregnant. How about now? Just curious!

Sara, I'm feeling really good! I don't think I have any pregnancy symptoms, but the bloat is gone and I just feel great.

I found a great blog post about successful IVF symptoms last night, and spotting was considered to be a good sign. So, I slept peacefully last night knowing that!
